Tokidoki for Smashbox

The Tokidoki collection for Smashbox is inspiring on many levels. The artwork for one. Not only are the illustrations on the boxes so cute but open up a compact to find the embossed pictures on the mirrors, nice detailing! A little surprise.

Artist Simone Legno created enchanting "Japanimation" pictures which adorn each item in the collection. I pulled out my sketchpad to design my own collection after seeing these adorable pictures and the colorful collection. Art is always inspiring to me. Cosmetics are inspiring. Doodling on paper gets the creative juices flowing. Things like this make you wonder what you can make and do.

Further inspiring are the shades of Tokidoki. Try mixing and match colors to come up with your own combinations. Use the Skin Tint in Bella, a flushed coral, as lipstick or cheek color. Mix in a dash of Light Luminizing Lotion and see what happens. Dab a touch of the off- white eye shadow under eyes as well as on the lids. Layer the lip glosses. Have fun, that's what Tokidoki is all about!

The eyeshadows (with colors like off- white, baby blue, peach and brown in the Modella palette and Celebrita offers soft gray, pink, white, and purple) each have a hint of sexy shimmer, they are blendable and of excellent quality as you would expect from Smashbox. Four small squares of color make up each palette.

Artificial Light Luminizing Lotion gives skin an opalescent radiance. It tones down any ruddiness and when the light catches the skin, notice the glow! This product blends well all over the face.

Being such a lipgloss lover, I was anxious to get my hands on the glosses! There is Drammatica, a shiny pinkish red. Yes, it's dramatic! Dolcissima is a peachy pink color that is suitable for every event whether it be out for coffee or work or a nice dinner or running to the store. I use Drammatica for those fancy awards shows and galas and banquets that I so often attend while Dolcissima has a place in my purse for every other time. Perfect consistency, high shine and mixed together the colors blend well and look super flattering to my skin which is light.

Soft Lights and Brush Set in Dolce Vita is a whispery pink blush. The fan brush is fluffy and wide, the cheek color comes in a big round pan. Dolce Vita gives a hint of light rosy color that is subtle and soft.

The Stellina Makeup Mirror is exactly what you need in your makeup bag when you are out and about, a girl on the town. It's a tiny round mirror that comes in a darling pouch. The mirror is very sleek and high quality. I love the little stars and hearts that are on the it-- makes me smile whenever I open the compact to check my makeup/teeth/eyebrows etc.

You can purchase the Tokidoki products at or Ulta, Nordstrom or Bloomingdale's. However, the Soft Lights and Brush Set is only available at the Holy Land or as it's known to everyone else, Sephora.

So, I don't really believe it may have success.

It will not succeed in actual fact, that is what I think.
